What is capped by the legislation?
Nevada Revised Statues NRS 361.4723 provides for a partial abatement of the ad valorem taxes levied in a county. This partial abatement results in a “Tax Cap”. The tax cap will limit the increase of your tax bill to 3% for your primary residence within Nevada or rental properties where the rent charged does not exceed the fair market rent, less utilities, for the county in which the dwelling is located, as most recently published by HUD. Most other property will receive an alternative "Cap", which is not to exceed 8% over the previous year’s tax bill in Churchill County. It does not limit the increase in assessed value.
